Yes, the length of a vector changing on transport around a loop is hard to imagine.
Where's the best place to read about this theory ?
I liked Eddington's description -- see #3. The book is public domain and available online at that link.

There are probably mathematical reasons why a scalar deficit can't work as a repository of gravity.
In the Weyl theory it's used as a geometric description of the electromagnetic field, not gravity.
